    Gen Z are now ‘polyworking’ because holding down just one job doesn’t pay enough or give them the flexibility they want (msn.com)
    I wondered how people worked multiple jobs while working full-time since there are only so many hours in a day. It turns out that they work from home and work multiple jobs all at once, literally at the same time.

    I don't know how they get anything done. I think if they take an 8-hour shift, which I think is full-time, that's two jobs plus another 8 hours to sleep. But the article clearly says they're doing 3 or more jobs a day. It's making me exhausted just looking at it.

    Doing 3 jobs a day would be hard to schedule if one was a full time 8 hour a day job unless your third job was something dopey at night for a few hours. In college in summers I worked a full time job during the day and then a part-time job in the evening. I worked 7-3:30 full time and then 4 to 8 in the evening. I suppose in theory I could have worked from like 9 to 1 in a bar or restaurant but it would have been the death of me because even when I went to like a movie, I was asleep ten minutes into it.
